After meeting you at the airport, we will drive you to your accommodation. We will also provide you with a briefing on your trek. You're free to tour the city for the remainder of the day.

Embark on your trek with our dedicated preparation day, meticulously designed for an unforgettable journey. Explore local attractions, finalize permits, and receive essential briefings from experienced guides. Utilize this time to fine-tune your gear, understand emergency procedures, and recharge before immersing yourself in breathtaking landscapes.

Arriving at Lukla by plane is amazing! The airfield below and the mountains surrounding it give the pilot the impression that this is an impossible feat. However, these are seasoned veterans who have completed hundreds of these tasks!
Hike for a few hours to Phakding after your trek crew picks up your bags and maybe after having a cup of hot tea. This is where you'll spend your first night in the Himalayas!

We cross the Dudh Koshi River on suspension bridges today as we approach the Sagarmatha National Park and rhododendron forests. When you get to Namche, you'll see why it's the trailhead for so many climbers and hikers—this lively town is the result!

Rest is not considered a component of acclimatization! Remaining active is the most effective way to aid your body in adjusting to high altitudes. Therefore, we step outside to explore the local surroundings. Khumjung village boasts notable attractions, including its historic monastery, renovated after the 2015 earthquake, and its connection to Sir Edmund Hillary. Additionally, the Everest View Hotel provides a spectacular perspective of Mount Everest, the very reason for your visit. Feel free to drop by for a coffee and enjoy the awe-inspiring view of Everest from their terrace.

Following a well-deserved day of rest and exploration in Namche Bazaar, we continue our journey by taking the trail westward. This route leads us up the Bhote Khosi Valley, historically a significant trading route to Tibet. Along the way, we'll be treated to impressive views of Kwangde Peak on our left and pass by cascading waterfalls. The trek guides us through dense rhododendron forests, and just before reaching the village of Thamo, we veer to the right. After a steep ascent of about an hour, we arrive at the charming hamlet of Mende, where we will spend the night.

Departing from Mende, we will trace a subtle Yak trail, crossing a couple of passes to enter Kyajo Drangka—an isolated, expansive valley situated to the south of Kyajo Ri. Throughout the trek, we will be treated to splendid views of Thamserku, Kusum Kangaru, Kwangde Peak, Parchamo Peak, and other neighboring snow-covered peaks. After a few hours of uphill trekking, we will reach the summer yak pasture ground, where our base camp will be established. The Sherpa team will efficiently set up the camp and initiate preparations for establishing higher-altitude camps, conducting essential checks on our climbing equipment.

Having ascended to an altitude exceeding 4500 meters, a rest day is essential at the base camp to mitigate the risk of altitude sickness. This break also offers an opportunity to appreciate the stunning views of nearby peaks and mountain valleys. To aid acclimatization, we can embark on captivating hikes along trails that unveil magnificent vistas of snow-capped mountains. While we explore the surroundings of the base camp, our Sherpa team will diligently conduct checks and preparations for the climbing equipment required for the ascent of Kyajo Ri Peak.

Following a complete day of rest at the Base Camp, we resume our ascent to higher elevations. Negotiating grassy spurs and boulders, we ascend via a steep rocky trail to reach a favorable camping site at 5,200 meters, where Camp I will be established. From this vantage point, we will be treated to splendid views of Kyajo Ri Peak and pristine glacial lakes. Our stay at Camp I precedes our further ascent to higher altitudes.

Taking another day of rest is important to help our bodies adjust to the high altitude, ensuring a safe and successful climb to the summit while avoiding any mental or physical sickness from altitude-related issues. Today at Camp I, we'll engage in light hikes that provide good acclimatization opportunities and offer excellent views of the nearby high peaks. Meanwhile, our team will conduct health checks and ensure all climbing equipment is in top condition for a successful Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing experience.

After a day of getting used to the altitude at Camp I, we continue climbing to even higher elevations. Today's climb involves navigating technical terrain, including rocks and glaciers, so we'll use fixed ropes and crampons for safety. After a few hours of challenging ascent, we'll reach a suitable camping spot near a large glacial lake at 5,700 meters. Once at the campsite, our Sherpa team will promptly set up the camp and begin preparing for the final climb to the summit, scheduled for the following day.

Today is the day we've been eagerly waiting for – the final climb to the summit. Fully prepared and adjusted to the altitude, we begin early to ensure we reach the summit before noon when strong winds could pose challenges. With the guidance of experienced climbing experts, we navigate technical sections to reach the sharp summit of Kyajo Ri Peak. The tiring climb rewards us with breathtaking views of towering mountains, including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, and others. We spend a short but quality time at the top before descending along the same route back to Camp II.

Having successfully reached the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak, we take a relaxed approach. After breakfast, we begin retracing our steps, descending from Camp II and following the same trail that passes through Camp I. We continue the vigorous descent until we reach the base camp, where we will set up camp for the night.

Departing from our camp at the base camp, we will proceed to follow the familiar trail back through Mende. Transitioning from alpine vegetation, we will enter the sub-tropical forested region adorned with rhododendron trees. The journey, which is relatively straightforward, will guide us back to Namche Bazaar.

Following breakfast, we departed from Namche and followed the Dudh Koshi River to Lukla, where we spent the night before catching a flight back to Kathmandu.

The journey is breathtaking once more, with views of mountains and farms till we eventually arrive at Kathmandu. We'll guide you to your accommodation and provide it once more. The journey is breathtaking, with views of mountains and farmlands all the way to Kathmandu.
We'll accompany you to your hotel and offer you recommendations for the remainder of the day's activities if that's what you would want.
